Castles are a common sight throughout Europe, and by looking at this one, you’d think it’s somewhere in Bavaria, Germany. However, it’s actually the Jilong Castle Country Club, which was established back in 2011, located on a small island on Wanfeng Lake in southwestern China’s Guizhou Province. Even though it may look expensive, this four-star resort apparently only charges around $40 USD per night to stay in one of their basic rooms. Read more for two videos and additional information.

The story goes that a local man who made his fortune in hydroelectric power funded this project, and also built a hydroelectric plant close by to generate all the electricity used at the resort. Some have compared this resort to Neuschwanstein Castle, a 19th-century romantic eclecticism palace situated on a rugged hill above the village of Hohenschwangau near Füssen in southwest Bavaria, Germany.
